Chris Carlin confirms Russ Salzberg is his replacement

I reported Friday that Russ Salzberg was a leading candidate for the Giants' pre- and post-game gig on WFAN that Chris Carlin is giving up this season.

I don't think the team or station has made an official announcement on this yet, but Carlin just confirmed it on the air, so I guess that's close enough to official.

I know Rich Ackerman was a candidate also. Not sure who else was on the short list. No one asked me. But I've got bigger ambitions.

It's been almost 24 hours since Cablevision bought Newsday, and still no calls from headquarters proposing a daily, late-afternoon debate show starring Glauber and me. I'm waiting.

(Feel free to suggest a name for such a show in the comments section, but be nice.)
